Big Texas Blow Out - A Head Full of Brushes Just Got Easier

Texas Tresses
Get a Big & Beautiful Blow out
with Ionic & CeramicDetachable Brushes
As a Texas girl, I like everything big. Big hair, big diamonds... big personality. It's hard getting a Texas sized blow out here in New York where every one wants stick straight hair. Styling hair with a lot of volume, swing and bounce can be challenging, that is why I just about did a hoedown when I saw this detachable brush set from Scalpmaster.

This set will create a perfect blow-out because it has a detachable barrel so the brushes can stay in the hair for a big, full "set". Simply connect a brush barrel to the handle, section hair, roll into barrel, secure with clamp and release handle, let is stay for 10-15 minutes until cool then gentle release for bounce. Hit that hair with some setting spray and viola... Miss Texas hair!

Create a perfect blow-out every time with this multi-function brush set. Detachable brush heads can be used as rollers to hold hair in place.

Set includes:
Two 1-3/4" Brush Barrels
Two 2" Brush Barrels
Two 2-1/4" Brush Barrels
One Brush Barrel
Six Roller Clamps
Storage Tote

I would retail this to all my Southern Belle beauties that like big hair styles that last a few days!  Also great for salon use.

I Have a Crush on Cotton Candy Bikini Wax

I am such a sucker for deliciously scented depilatory wax! That's why I went nuts when I saw that Plum Smooth now has a Cotton Candy Strip Wax for sweetly scented hair removal!
I think Katy Perry would LOVE this wax! ;-)
Strip Wax Never
Smelled So Good!

The new Plum Smooth Strip Wax in Cotton Candy scent is an all-purpose depilatory wax that can be used for facial, body, or bikini waxing services.

Beeswax, rosin, and titanium dioxide are swirled together with mica to create a silky, YUMMY smelling strip wax that’s perfect for all hair types. Pink color looks like cotton candy!

If you love scented wax as much as I do, be sure to check out the mouthwatering scents from Mancine Professional. They have amazing quality waxes that allow for ULTRA comfortable bikini waxing and just happen to smell HEAVENLY! Vanilla and Strawberry are two of my favorite and they happen to be #1 sellers in busy spas and salons.

Galaxy Nails - Awesome New Nail Trends 2013

I am almost 41 years old... but I am OBSESSED with funky nail art and trends. My husband thinks I am having a mid life crisis and the Hoity-Toity nail spa I go to on Long Island thinks I'm nuts.  Every time I ask for "ombre nails" or "galaxy nails" they tell me, "We don't do that  here - go to Queens!" - HA!

So last week I slipped my nail girl a $20 and asked her to watch this YouTube video and learn the "Galaxy nail technique" so that next time I come in she can give me me the galaxy manicure of my dreams!

Salons, don't discriminate! I shouldn't have to bribe a nail tech to learn a new technique.  Learning these new trends is a great way to expand your revenue and client base.

To see the latest variations and techniques on this trend just Google image "galaxy nails"... it's impressive how creative people are!

Pros; Here is a list of the supplies / nail colors needed for the galaxy nail art technique:
Cosmetic Sponge
Dark Blue Metalic Polish
Sea Spray Polish
Pink Polish
Essie Carnival
Techo Glitter - China Glaze

Holographic Nail Polish - Halo Polish Trends for Summer 2013

One of my FAVORITE new polish trends right now are the iridescent, holographic fairy dust like
The holographic effects of
The Halo Collection are
Eye -popping!
colors from 
Color Club's Halo Hue's Collection.  Color Club NAILED IT with this collection because both the intensity and the smoothness are exceptional in these polishes... and all the colors create high flash, intense multi-dimensional flair, and serious holographic effects that keep people asking, "Where did you get your manicure!?".  Even mature clients love these hues for an eye-popping "power nail". The power nail is when the ring finer of each hand is painted a different color.  My 65 year old mom is obsessed with crazy "power nail" colors.  She says it keeps her feeling "hip & young". 

Stay on trend and add the 36 piece display to your salon or spa today!

Pure Spa has a 36 piece retail display of the 6 super hot halo colors for retail in your salon

The Display Contains 6 of each shade:
No. 05A976 Harp On It
No. 05A977 Cloud Nine
No. 05A978 Halo-Graphic
No. 05A979 Blue Heaven
No. 05A980 Cherubic
No. 05A981 Angel Kiss

and it works well as an astringent.

Crunchy, Uncomfortable Massages - TABLE PAPER TORCHURE

Massage Tips: What is on your Massage Table?  

I have a favorite massage spot here on Long Island.  
Massage Zen with Table Paper 
But, without fail, every time I arrive for an appointment, I have to plead with the therapist to take off the two layers of  table paper and drape sheets on the Earthlite massage table.  

They ALWAYS plead it is better to keep it on (over the sheets) – and I always have to get FIRM in order to convince them to remove it. 

I tried it once, and I got up in the middle of a 50 minute massage and said, “ENOUGH! – We have to take off this paper”.  I could never get into the relaxation zone with the sound of paper crunching and bunching underneath me with each massage stroke.  When the therapist asked me to flip over, the paper bunched up, tangled, RIPPED and stuck to my oiled skin. The Therapist said, “Don’t worry; there is another layer of paper underneath this one.” ARGH!!!!!! That’s when I got up and started ripping it off the table like wire hangers in “Mommy Dearest”.  It was maddening! There were perfectly soft, and cozy sheets on the massage table! So why RUIN a massage by covering it in rough, sterile paper?

Massages are supposed to be blissful.  There is NOTHING blissful about table paper during a massage. I associate it with pap smears, painful bikini waxes, physicals and the flu. Why? I am not really sure, but table paper is for waxing and doctor's offices... NOT massage tables. Let me sink into smooth, comfy sheets and drift away!

A comfortable table, warm oil, table sheets / bedding and a table warming pad are the foundation for a beautiful and memorable massage treatment.  SKIP THE PAPER & PAPER DRAPE SHEETS!  It makes for a more relaxing and luxurious experience for your clients – I promise!

Smoother, Softer & More Comfortable Massage Stones

Hair Color Trends for 2013

Hairstylist to the stars and Ambassador for Wella and Sebastian, Claudio Lazo is one of the go-to sources for all that is hot, happening and trending for the new year.

Over the past 2 years, the industry has seen a shift from hair color that blends in to hair that stands out and makes a bold statement. The exciting news is that 2013 will be no different!  According to Lazo, who worked with Michael Kors and Nicole Ritchie for their fashion shows, people will now be experimenting with non-traditional colors, such as blues, purples, burgundy, pinks and both warm and cool versions of violet.  In addition, expect your clients to request some subtle, yet daring pastels hues!

An excellent line to use for both the trends and the classics is the Matrix Logics Color DNA System.  Check out the Matrix Professional Website HERE where you can access tons of information, guides, descriptions and a very informative handbook for the Logics system.

Don't forget that Pure Spa Direct has Apparel, Appliances, Brushes / Combs, Hair-Coloring Accessories and everything else you need for salon services!

Pure Spa Gloves You! Latex, Nitrile, Vinyl and more... nearly 300 glove choices!

Spas and Salons need gloves... lots of them.  There are so many choices -- some are a matter of preference, others are a matter of necessity based on the treatment.

Latex Gloves:
Latex gloves are available in powdered and powder free (no powder).  Some prefer the light powder on the inside as it makes them easier to don (put on) and doff (take off), while others are annoyed by the powder residue on their hands. Latex has perhaps the most natural feel and greatest sensation of touch, but some have latex allergies and should avoid them.  Latex gloves are also available with aloe -- a great choice over powdered -- they are easier to don and doff and don't have any powder residue... BUT they are more expensive. Latex gloves are available in natural rubber color, black - great to hide stains during hair color and other services, blue, green and more.

Vinyl Gloves:
Vinyl gloves are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are latex-free. Since vinyl gloves are not form-fitting, they fit more loosely than latex and are normally a bit less in price. They are also available in powdered and power free (no powder).  There are "stretchy" vinyl gloves that more closely simulate latex and they make a great choice for those who prefer the stretchy feel of latex, but can't wear them due to latex sensitivity issues. Vinyl does not stand up well to acetone - nail techs take note!

Nitrile Gloves:
Nitrile gloves are an oil-based product which have similar physical characteristics of latex gloves. They stretch like rubber, although they have no latex in them.  They ofer superior performance in a variety of applications. There are lots of reasons why disposable nitrile gloves are a great choice: they are 3 times more puncture resistant than regular latex gloves, they provide a stronger barrier of protection and offer greater chemical resistance, they have a lower resistance to friction, making them easier to put on and take off your hands, they do not contain any natural rubber latex, so they can be used by anyone with latex allergies, even though they are disposable, nirtile gloves can usually be worn more than once because of their superior puncture and tear resistance, Nitrile reacts to your body temperature and conforms to the shape of your hand, making a snug and comfortable fit. Nitrile does not stand up well to acetone - nail techs take note! Nitrile gloves are available in blue, purple, black, white and more.

Poly Gloves:
Polyethylene Gloves (Latex Free) also called PE gloves or "plastic gloves" are made with materials approved by USDA, provide protection from organic vapors, dusts and mists thus making them a smart choice for any food service application. All of the poly gloves are powder free. These are gloves like you see in many food service uses -- they look like baggie material.  They are inexpensive and great for certain uses - like hair colorists.  However, they do not fit snugly and can be a bit awkward where a high degree of touch is required... they would be a bad choice for facialists! Poly gloves are typically clear.

Whatever your glove needs or preferences, Pure Spa Direct has YOUR glove in YOUR size!

Nail Trend: Caviar Manicures, Doug Gets One!

MIA Caviar beads, just after a few hours.
Here at Pure Spa, we are are always looking into new trends in the Salon, Nail, Massage and Day Spa markets.  We are constantly seeking out new lines that can offer your business services and merchandise to help keep you on trend with what clients are looking for. Whether it's an awesome new pedicure, facial or Massage, we know that staying current is an important aspect to retaining and attracting clients.  So we were very intrigued to learn about the Caviar Manicure craze this summer and were considering bringing it on board to Pure Spa.

When our Caviar nail beads showed up for beta testing we ran into a glitch.  All of our usual test subjects just had Shellac manicures, so the only person with a clean nail was Doug Dema in our Marketing department...poor Doug, I had to send an apology note to his wife. We were all so eager to try out the process, Doug allowed me to test out a few of his nails to evaluate the application process and the quality of the wear.

So the Caviar Bead Manicure process begins like any other manicure:

1) Clean and prep nail
2) Base coat
3) 2 Polish coats - one nail at a time
4) Now sprinkle on Caviar beads while nail by nail while polish is wet.
5) Pat beads carefully into nail, taking care to make sure the edges are fully covered.
6) After 10-15 drying (we did not use a lamp or dryer), Apply a clear top coat.

Doug Does Caviar -
And Not Very Well.
Without the top coat, the beads are not going to stay on for more than a few hours.

After applying a thick top coat, it took about 30-40 minutes for the nail to fully dry and the beads to feel "locked in" - again, we did not use a lamp or dryer.

After all this drying time, the manicure and the Caviar beads did hold up through several hand washings and Doug's daily routine of banging stuff around, but after a few hours, beads starting falling off.

So what was the verdict? This is a cute trend but we felt it was a service that was too long to perform in light of it's temporary results. It is on trend for the younger age groups, and with the time involved in doing it well, and doing it right - the price point for this manicure would need to be in the $45 range, which we feel may be too much.  And at that price point, clients will want a manicure that lasts longer than a few days.

Alternatively, I have heard from some salons that are just adding the Caviar to one nail, like the ring finger.  That sounds a bit more practical.

Shellac and Gelish manicures are still the number one trend of choice for our salon and spa shoppers!

When Your Skin Gets a COLD too! Spa Treatments to Comfort Skin

If having a cold is not miserable enough, we have to contend with our skin getting sick too.  It never fails to happen to me! My skin goes haywire, and I can usually tell when I am starting to get sick by how my skin is behaving.

Clues of Seasonal Cold SKIN Blues:
- Zits gone wild. New shapes, sizes and colors cropping up all the face.
Restore Your Skin's
Healthy Appearance
After a NASTY cold!
- Over dryness from nasal sprays, decongestants, antihistamines
- Puffy and droopy eyes and cheeks that make me look like a morphed former version of myself.
- Watery, runny eyes that burn with every blink.

And these symptoms can stick around for about a week or so AFTER the cold has passed. It can be kind of depressing to feel better and look in the mirror and see your skin didn't get the memo!  So I wanted to share some products that you can use in your professional Facial Treatments on your clients this cold season (once they are well of course).

BEST Bets for De-Puffing, Hydrating & Rejuvenating:

Cucumber Gel Mask by Amber: Has the ability to enhance water retention in tissue allowing the epidermis to achieve greater suppleness. With the combination of cucumber extract, allantoin and aloe vera this product is effective in soothing irritated skin.

Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask: I'm obsessed with this mask! It can be used hot or cold (I like it warm - a few seconds in the microwave) and is perfect for relief of pain and swelling of superficial soft tissue in the eye, nose and sinus area. Wrap with a thin layer facial diaper or disposable soft towel. Cover is removable for washing too.

Lymphatic Drainage - The IONTO Skin Regulator:

- Four areas that benefit from the skin regulator:
- Nerves, blood and lymph vessels: relieves blockage and removes waste and toxins via blood and lymph drainage.
- Connective tissue: balances the flow and activates the metabolism at the cellular level.
- Epidermis: increases absorption of active substances.
- Muscles: loosens tension.

Ahhhhhh... relief & results!

Slow The Grow: Papaya Infused Concentrate Delays Re-Growth

Post Epilation Treatment  20 Pack
Let's face it - waxing is no fun. The pain or discomfort does not even bother me, it is getting undressed from the bottom down every 6-8 weeks and having someone face first in my "biscuit" (thank you Honey Boo Boo)! Being fully exposed is more painful than the waxing itself.  If there was a way to slow down the frequency of my humiliation I would be thrilled!  

Natural extracts of Papaya and Vitamin E
Actively slow down hair regrowth and nourish skin.
I have tried a few other brands of post depilatory products from our beauty supply store, but I could not really tell if they were effective.  What intrigued me about these Depileve Gold Concentrate Post Epilation Ampoules is that they contain Papaya.  I know that Papain (papaya enzyme) is an extremely effective enzyme used in many of our best selling spa products, and I recently read that it has been used for thousands of years for effectively prolonging the effects of hair removal.  So this sounds very interesting! I know that so many of our spa and salon clients trust the Depileve brand in their beauty businesses.  So today I picked up a 20 pack to try out in hopes to see a longer time between wax appointments! I feel that clients would greatly appreciate their waxing professional offering ampoules / post wax treatments like this. Check them out at today! Depileve Gold Concentrate Ampoules

Injecting Profits into Spas - Call the Doctor to Give Clients a Lift

Injectables offer spa clients more dramatic
and youthful results. 
There comes a time in any client's skincare regime when they have exhausted the routine of facials, microderm packages, masks and creams in their quest to stay youthful - they want more. Many small spa businesses and estheticians find themselves trying to decide what to add to their menu as a next level of treatment to address more aggressive signs of aging for these types of clients.  Some will opt for purchasing or leasing IPL machines, lasers, or various types of equipment in hopes of helping clients reach that next level of rejuvenation.  But with these types of units costing $10,000 - $40,000 (and results varying client to client), the investment can sometimes go bust.  Not to mention, if your competitor down the street gets the same unit, sales for these services can quickly go flat.

"Injectable Fillers for age conscious clients compliment
skin care services spas already offer."  -Dr. Joel Lamm
(Photo: 2 days post cheek injections, Botox & Juvaderm XC)
Recently, I took my mom to see my dermatologist, Dr. Joel Lamm, for his signature "Liquid Face Lift". My 64 year-old working mom sees Dr. Lamm to "work his magic," lifting, plumping, sculpting and filling her badly aged face with Botox and Juvederm XC.  Not only is this "Liquid Face Lift" a serious confidence booster, she feels it is important not to look her age in this tumultuous job market (but that is a whole other blog).  She, like many other spa clients, had exhausted her efforts of anti-aging facials, peels and microderm treatments and was ready for a serious boost of beauty.

While there with my mom, Dr. Lamm told me in addition to his dermatology practice on Long Island, he has begun seeing clients at a popular day spa in Tribeca.  He visits once a month to see the spa's existing and new clients who want Botox, Juvederm, Restylane or "the works" - aka the Liquid Lift my mom gets.  He explained this mutually beneficial arrangement with the spa allows him to expand his clientele, while the spa gets to offer top-notch injectable services that clients want.

This arrangement makes sense.  When a client is ready for a dramatic and long-lasting boost of beauty - why should they leave the spa and go seek out a dermatologist, why lose that business?  This type of working relationship benefits all parties.

  • Spa retains clients and keeps offerings current
  • Spa attracts new clients interested in fillers - but wary of Physician's offices
  • Dermatologist and Spa share revenue from service
  • Dermatologist sees clients once a month - doesn't pay rent for a second location
  • Clients get to have treatment in a comfortable environment they trust and know
  • Clients get to look drastically better, and still visit the spa for facials and treatments in between injections.
  • One-stop beauty for spa and esthetic clients

So how should you find a reputable dermatologist that will be a good fit for your business?  Check with Allergan,  They have a website that allows you to locate a certified Physician who  performs injectables.  Contact them and start a dialog!  My advice, stick with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.  Sorry, but I would not take my mom to see a podiatrist that is certified to inject Botox! Dr. Lamm is located in Hicksville, NY - and specializes in creating natural looking (but astounding) effects with injectables.

Facial Client Retail: Dermalogica & June Jacobs Powder Exfoliant Reviews

Estheticians often tell me that if they had to send their clients home with only ONE retail product to maintain beautiful, glowing skin, it would be an exfoliator.  Something gentle, but powerfully effective in sweeping away dead skin cells, brightening dull complexions and keeping skin clear of breakouts, thus keeping clients' skin looking great in between facial appointments. This is important for both the client and the esthetican because great product recommendations build trust and repeat business.

SO what to retail? 

Years ago, my esthetican sold me Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant after a facial: A dry, powder exfoliating polish that activates with water. I LOVED it devotedly for a few years. I have subsequently tried BareMinerals / Bare Escentuals - Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and found it to be blah.  So when June Jacobs recently launched her Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder,  I was eager to try and compare.  

Rice, Bamboo, Salicylic Acid & Papain
Leave Skin GLOWING!
#1 Retail to Clients!
The results of June Jacob's Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder.... IT IS MY NEW OBSESSION!  My skin is not glowing - it is BEAMING.  All the little hormonal pimples I had bulging at the surface of my skin have retreated. My skin looks smooth, healthy, flawless and RADIANT, and it looks YOUNG!  Which, after just turning 40 last month, is very important!!  

Also, Radiant Refining Powder is Paraben Free! Dermalogica's Microfoliant is not. (My bottle of Microfoliant  has "Methylparaben" listed) 

I am also in love with the amount of anti-oxidants in June's formula.  Microfoliant has some, but JJ's Radiant Refining Powder has MORE - like: 
  • Bearberry Leaf Extract
  • Mulberry Fruit Extract
  • Lemon Fruit Extract
  • Willow Bark Extract
  • Goji Berry Fruit Extract
  • Pomegranate Fruit Ferment Extract
  • Grape Seed Extract
  • Red Tea Leaf Extract
June Jacob's is a world renowned name and brand in the five-star spa industry.  Her products are highly regarded for their natural properties and effective performance.

Estheticians and Day Spas - if you are looking for an exciting, effective, paraben free, dye free, fragrance free and sulfate free line of products to retail to your clients and to use during facials - check out June Jacobs wholesale at Pure Spa - call 800-434-0018 for your pricing!
